A good gaming headset

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello all, I'm looking for a good pair of gaming headset.

I've been doing alot of research on the internet... Now my mind is stuck between these:

Logitech G35
SteelSeries Siberia V2 (USB)
Razer Megalodon

Anyone got recommendations regarding this?

Thanks alot!



State your budget! (Set an absolute maximum or give a relative maximum with + x amount if it will be amazingly better).
$100

State your music tastes
Just normal music, watching movies and playing games

State what perks are highly desirable (low impedance, heavy bass, excellent for gaming etc..)
Just normal music, watching movies and playing games

State what products you already have and are planning on using with your recommended item (state whether you have an amp if you're looking for headphones with high impedance for example)
Logitech G35
SteelSeries Siberia V2 (USB)
Razer Megalodon

State how you are going to use the item (e.g. out-and-about, at the gym, at home, PC / console, gaming, music etc). The more detail in this, the better.
Just gonna use it at home for my computer.

State where you live and offer some sites that are known for having good prices / being reputable so we can help recommend you products in your country's currency (like Amazon or ebay).
I'm from Malaysia, i usually buy my stuff from an online forum --> forum.lowyat.net

I'd recommend the G35, if you're inclined towards the "surround sound". I personally don't like Razer stuffs, so not recommending the Megalodon.

4 different people with those, myself included, had them broke after a couple of months. No sound on one earcup, mic not working, inline volume control making weird noises when you use it, etc.
Don't recommend buying those, whatever model.

A lot of other people recommended the Siveria V2. Yes, they are overprice, but where I live you can't get the bang-for-the buck good ones, like the audio technica stuff.

Are you ok with a standard headphone + clip-on / lapel microphone and a soundcard?

this, you will get much better quality. Gaming headsets are just not worth it.
